The Compassionate Friends (TCF) is a charitable organisation of bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents dedicated to the support and care of other similarly bereaved family members who have suffered the death of a child or children of any age and from any cause.
TCF has no religious affiliation and offers support to bereaved families irrespective of the age of the child, cause of death, ethnic, social or political background.
We respect the privacy of all those who come to us for support and offer a confidential service.
We offer peer to peer support for bereaved parents. To access support you need to have lost a child or children, of any age and from any loss.
Siblings need to be over 18 to receive support, we also have some support available for grandparents who have lost a grandchild or grandchildren.
Parents can contact the helpline themselves or family / professionals can make contact for them.
There are volunteers who run groups in Glasgow and also some who offer one to one support.
